influence of special interests in the decision-making here, in washington -- but this -- this is central to that. if you're going to deliver a message on the state of the union, one of the things you have to address how do we get -- how do we free our government from the grips of special interests. we, for example, proposed that every lobbyist disclose who they have contact with, whether it's in the administration or congress on behalf of their clients. we have to take some steps to protect our government, our democracy from the overweening influence of special interests. >> still don't have an answer if it was appropriate. >> i think it was appropriate. >> and alito's response. >> in this weird political season we are accustomed to unusual outbursts in the chamber during these speeches. >> final question. is the country better off than a year ago? >> look, until -- obviously in some ways the answer is yes. a year ago we were losing 700,000 jobs a month. when the president took office. our economy was shrinking at a rate of 6.4%. last friday we learned it's growing now at a rate of 6%. t
have been going in washington. and that may get help to vote for brown. others have been very much in support of coakley saying that they believe that she would more match the ideas of, foegs, ted kennedy's legacy. and they've tried to get out the vote today. they have a much stronger organization to do those things of getting people to the polls because of all of the democrats' history here and their usual dominance in these elections. so part of it is energy versus organization in how things will play out today. and from what we've been hearing checking in with different polling places, the turnout has been bigger than you would ever expect for a special election. more like a midterm election, but not rising to the level of when a presidential race is on the ballot. so this has gotten huge attention here in boston. it's raleally is snapshot of th discontent. and for some they're imposing on to scott brown a chance to do something differently even if they're not entirely sure about all of his views. and martha coakley who remains popular here has been hit with a lot of criticism a
>>> good morning. from washington to wall street, with main street on the mind, the president promising to take on the devastation. >> despite our hardships, our union is strong. we do not give up. we do not quit. we do not allow fear or division to break our spirit. in this new decade, it's time the american people get a government that matches their decency, that embodies their strength. >> today, americans and the markets react. we'll have complete coverage, plus a flurry of corporate reports today, like proctor & gamble, 3m, ford and more. and i'm back in the studio, but becky is still reporting live from davos against this morning. beck. >> that is right, joe. everything from president obama's state of the union address through the corporate headlines. the biggest names in business and politics, we're watching it all from here and we're commenting throughout the day.

saying farewell to conan on the "tonight show." >>> now back to the big story in washington. how are democrats going to get health care done in nbc's mike viqueira joins us now. there are all sorts of theories to the case. one theory i'm hearing right now, they don't have a working theory. mike, what can you tell us? >> reporter: chuck, they say that politics is the art of the possible. if that's true, nancy pelosi and president obama, it is time for them to paint their masterpiece because this does not look good. they met yesterday in nancy pelosi's office, the democratic leadership of the house. meeting again this morning. they still do not have a solution. one thing that's clear, the option of taking the senate bill, as if it wasn't already obvious by now, and simply passing it in the house, the votes are not there for nancy pelosi. people in the middle upset. conservatives within the democratic caucus upset. of course liberals are upset. they don't want a accept a senate bill with no public option. a lot of the other compromises that were made that they believe have cost demo
questions about the congressional budget agenda. from the nation's capital, this is "washington journal." host: good morning. we will get to your calls in just a minute. we are interested to hear from you now that you had 24 hours to absorbent the massachusetts election. talking to your friends, reading some of the blogs and newspaper analysis. we would very much like to hear your analysis for what it means for the parties of the big policy initiatives. we will get to your calls in a minute. emily pierce is our first guest, joining us by phone. front-page story on a "roll call." the question is the biggest policy issue, health care. after a day of observing it, what our leaders saying? guest: in the immediate aftermath they are saying we need to take a deep breath and think about what we need to do. at the same time, they are exploring this option of the house perhaps taking up the senate bill and just send it to the president. in order to do that, you would need an agreement by the senate to pass a separate bill through budget reconciliation rules, the need for 60 votes, that w
special starts right now. . >>> good evening from washington you are looking live at the house floor. as we await the president's arrival we'll see the members of his cabinet and supreme court start filing in as you take a look from the vice president and house speaker bringing that session to order. this speech was largely thought at one time to be[%z a celebration for this administration. what could have been trumpeting their biggest priority health care reform legislation that was supposed to be through by now. as we see the first lady arriving in the box there. first lady michelle obama. let's bring in tonight's panel. syndicateed panelist charles krauthheimer. juan williams. and steve hayes with the weekly standard. we'll continue to look at live pictures here. charm, as i said one time thought to be the health care reform state of the union. it is a different environment after massachusetts one week and one day ago. >> health care is on life support as we just saw the president's spokesman has said they have no idea how to proceed from the excerpts the white house has released
. >> i bit. everyone was sort of charged up about it. all of washington is actually very excited about it. people were thrilled. i mean, and democrats were very thrilled. the president's naturally going to dominate an event like that. he's got the podium. they are just holding handhelds. but republicans were thrilled too. i spoke to a bunch of republicans who were there afterwards and people who are-- . >> lehrer: what did they say. >> they were happy. they said he said all along we don't have plans but over and over again he acknowledged yeah, we do have alternatives, we've been offering them. so they acknowledged that he got most of the time, he did very well. but they were thrilled that they got some points across. and they were thrilled by the exchange. and i think americans will be thrilled by the exchange, to the extent they see it and will it lead to a mass depolarization, not exactly, obviously. and you know, there are fundamental differences on manys like health care there are just different approaches. but i think one of the things the president did very well is list a whole ser
and the potential for an historic upset. msnbc chief washington correspondent norah o'donnell in boston this morning, better known as the cheers bar. you look a lot warmer this morning, norah. give us a sense of -- polls open in an hour. what do things look like now? >> reporter: well, democrats are bracing for a devastating defeat that could hand the republican party 41 votes in the senate and perhaps kill barack obama's health care reform. so they are worried. they are trying to do everything they can at the last moment to try and pull out this race with a get-out-the-vote operation with all the democratic mayors and local polls trying to sort of get out the vote this very -- you know, today when the polls open at 7:00, they close at 8:00 tonight. it's going to be tough. there's already finger pointing about what went wrong during this campaign, whether martha coakley was a bad candidate, whether democrats were asleep at the wheel, whether they didn't recognize the anger and anxiety out there in this country, or that scott brown was a good candidate who was running a stealth campaign with a couple
that is our headline this thursday night, mr. brown goes to washington. senator elect scott brown had a full schedule on capitol hill today. meeting first with arizona senator john mccain in his office. >> i'm honored that senator mccain as you now know is one of the first people to actually look me in the eye in this office and say it's a long shot but i'm with you if, if you feel you can win it. i wanted to thank him for that support. >> sean: later emit with -- he met with mitch mcconnell, senator john kerry and harry reid found enough time on his busy leave his smokey backroom behind those closed doors that we've grown accustomed to, to greet the senator elect. >> you're going to end the senate at a time when the country is in deep trouble, as you know that was a lot what your campaign was about. i look forward to working with you. >> sean: you can feel the love in that room. it seems without a super majority prince harry has to accept the fact his health care bill is dead. brown's overwhelming victory impacts more than the debate over health care in america. his victory mashes the begin
in washington were both offering assurances they could find other ways to pass health care without their 60-vote supermajority in the senate and also writing its obituary. congressman anthony wiener saying you can make a pretty good argument that health care might be dead. but restorative measures under way. the white house pushing the congress to bypass the senate by having the house vote on the exact bill that already passed the senate instead of the compromise bill now worked on by congressional negotiators and send that to the president for his signature. house speaker nancy pelosi previously poured cold water on that option. this afternoon she suggested it would not be necessary, though she did not explain why. >> our eye is on the ball of passing legislation. in order to do that, we have to resolve some differences, establish some priorities, make some decisions. and that's what we're doing. whether -- whatever happens in massachusetts, we have to do that. and whatever happens in massachusetts, we will have quality, affordable health care for all americans, and it will be soon. >> earlier,
the health care bill. it is about the lack of civility in washington. >> very people who put together the winning coalition for barack obama are fleeing in droves. >> if brown wins tomorrow, the bill as we see it is dead that would be catastrophic for the democrats. >> a lot of these measures are gonna rest on one vote in the united states senate. >> what is the next move if you only have 59 senators? >> health care mind be dead. >> sean: voters are choosing who will fill the seat left vacant by the late ted kennedy. >> it's the pooh people's seat. >> -- >> things will wrap up at 8:00 tonight. the polls in massachusetts are closed and the republicans returns are pouring in. scott brown the republican will win the massachusetts special election. >> i just off the phone with scott brown. i've offered him my congratulations. >> this does change everything. >> this in many ways a national referendum. >> an election that will shock the political world and have reverberations all around washington. >> time to end business as usual. >> what happened here in mass mats can happen all over amer
in trouble for the midterm elections? karl rove joins us here in washington. midterm elections just around the conferencer, i suppose that was a rude awakening for some in massachusetts? >> absolutely. midterm elects critical moments are happening now as the republicans scramble to get candidates for congress and senate. this has given them a big boost in the arm. as democrats attempt to keep their members running for reelection it has obviously hurt. defection of a senior democrat first elected '92 in the house from arkansas pulling the rip cord and bailing out marion barry? >> greta: why? >> there are 49 democrats in the house of representatives, who represent seats carried by bush and mccain, 48 were carried by bush and mccain all three times. his district was 59% for mccain up from 54. a district in the northeast corner of arkansas, main cities jonesboro, a little from little rock down to the southwestern part of the district the northwest historically republican ozark country but it is a republican district here had you one of the more partisan members of the house who had been a rela
